A good yet a boring Movie.

Taare Zameen Par (2007)

Powered by: Chakpak.comTaare Zameen Par



A good Cinema is a Cinema that makes any viewer to relate himself with it. It takes him on a ride to his childhood and takes him through his youth and make himself stand in front of him.
In the country where good cinema are categorized as "Off beat", Taare zameen par is going to its own road.

Taare zameen Par is a true "world class movie" in all the senses of the word .

The industry where in the serious cinema are watched only by intellectuals and scholars (becos they are too boring for the common man to watch ), Taare zameen par is going to be the first good movie which is going to talk to the common man not about international politics or poverty or globalization but about the subject which is most neglected by the Indian cinema industry "The Child".

It is not a movie for children it is the movie about the children for the elders.



I know that one movie cannot make any huge difference and it will be forgotten in the midst of award nights and nth jubilee celebrations. But when years past I can show this movie to my son/daughter and say "See the quality of the movies which where made in my times".

THE STORY OF THE EARTH

Once upon a time there was The GOD. He created the whole universe and in it he created a beautiful planet called the earth. Then He decided to create the most wonderful creation he has ever made "The Man". The Angels alerted him that the man will shed blood and spread problems and will not surrender to his will like the rest of the universe. God Knew that giving free will to man is the biggest risk he is taking. But GOD had already taken the decision He created Adam and Eve.

Adam and Eve, The Father and mother of six and a half billion people living around the world. The Adam's family began to grow bigger and bigger they started spreading. They went looking for new grounds. Slowly and steady the world began to spread.

God through his messengers (people call them angels) selected some of the good men from the human community to teach man about the purpose of life and to teach man how to live the life. and The GOD made sure that he had his Men in all the ages and all the civilizations ever lived on the face of the earth. He had such 1,24,000 of such good men starting with the first man Mr Adam.

These good Men are the greatest men we always heard about. The Men Like Ram, Krishna, Jesus, Moses, Noah, Abraham, Joseph. These Men taught people about the purpose of life and showed them the way of Life.

And then the day had come when he had to seal this process. The world had become one big community. The world was spread over. It was the perfect time for sending the last messenger Mohammed. Last of God's men. Mohammed took the responsibility of showing light to all the men who are living and are going to live till the end of the worlds. So he was very cautious of all the messages that he got from god through the messengers(angels). He collected all the messages and gave the final shape to Quran which was later given a form of book after he passed away.

This Book was then assigned the task which was done by the God's Best men ever lived.It showed light only to those who wanted the light. It never showed light to those who wanted to live in darkness and to those who self proclaimed to themselves that they were in light. It taught the Men the Purpose of life. and GOD promised to the men that he will preserve this book till the end of the world and he then made it available to all the son's and daughter's of his.

He gave this Book to the men and he gave them free will. He told to the mankind through quran. " There is no compulsion. He who ever wants to follow can follow and he who ever wants to reject can reject ", and he thus wrote the greatest tale ever told "THE STORY OF THE EARTH ".

Tagged

So? I’m tagged by Hema.
So? I am going to say some random things about me.


Rules:
1. Players start with 5 random facts about themselves. The random facts must be both deeply philosophical and flatly ludicrous at once. (As a leeway, what the player says need not be random or factual as such.)
2. Those who are tagged must behave like nice people. They should post these rules, modifying them suitably if necessary, and their 5 random facts. They must not think of this as a teenager’s activity. Life’s all about such innocent fun (even if you’re in your late-20s, obsessed with more important things like the original identities of bloggers and blog-commenters, or in 30s and completely bald).
3. Players should tag 3 other people and notify them they have been tagged. (If they don’t feel like doing this, there’s another alternative: they should post 10 random facts instead of 5.)


Random facts about me:

1. In school days I always had a doubt in the back of my mind that my parents bought me from somewhere and I used keep see everything from this point of view and always tried to prove to myself that I was a true heir to my parents.

2. I have not shed my tears in pain for the last three years in a row. In my school days i used to cry for anything and everything. Dad used to go to Bombay too often for business purposes, I can still remember that night i started crying and kept crying till the dawn(I always made sure that nobody saw me crying)

3. When in my Kindergarten, My Nursery teacher doubted that I was dumb. Once even she asked my mom "Ningalude makan pottanaa llee??" (Your Sun is dumb right??).

4. In my plus 2 days I used to frequently cut classes and go to movies alone. And that one day i saw four movies straight, back to back and slept out most part of the fourth movie.

5. In my college days I was a full time social worker and used to spend at least 1 hour per day for social activities and used to spend good part of my weekends for the good of the needy. One of my greatest wish that days were to go to jail for atleast one day for doing something very big. And i very nearly lost one of the greatest opportunity when most of my friends got arrested for protesting against the American War policies and the saddest part is that I was there in the city on the same day. All of them were let free after 4 hours of lock up.

And now the tagging part. I am going to tag some random guys. I am sure they wont even respond to my notification. I am doing this because I cant think about another 5 Random thoughts about me.

I tag:

1. Smijith : "I know everything about him". He dont believe in the whole concept of blogging and the first thing he will say is. Oh ya you have a blog le.. Please send me the link.
2. Rajesh : He hates the concept of blogging and he hates all the males and females who call themselves bloggers. and the first thing he will say is "thu paradesi naaye........... dash dash dash "
3. Kannamai: Commenting or writing in a blog will be the last thing she will ever do in her life.

I know all three of you don't have a blog. You can use my Comments space to be random.

Amir:
and in the final journey all people are same
no black no white

no sister
no girl friend
nothig
everybody

and all ther relations in this earth
are just situational
pApA:
thats very much true
Amir:
you me
our friendship
everything
the things around us
our clother
clotehs
camerea
computer
all are just situational
it has no value in the long run
just like the things we get in fiesta inn hotel for a single day
next day the lady will come and change them
pApA:
Also ..
u forget one thing ..
though she changes all the stuff
but actuall the new stuff has also taken shape from the same eternal source
thtt source is never ending
never exhausting
actually ...
it is the source for everything ..
the soul of all the travellers
me
u
and everyone else
Amir:
hmm
and in the end of the journey
we reach in a ground

and finally the waiting is over
it is your turn for judment
one person will come with a book
extend your right hand
and keep your left hand in the back
you hide the left hand
you dont want to take the book in left hand
becos you know
if you take the book in left hand you are in trouble
and you get the book
you open the book
it is the book of life
it has record of all the things you did
all the things you thought
all the things you said
everything
it is almost like a log book
which has everyting
from day you were born to the day you died on earth
pApA:

you good deeds and bad deeds will be "weighed"
it will be given quantitavie figure
for good deeds this much
for bad deeds this much
then if you have more good deeds than bad deeds then you go to heaven and live there till no end
you live ther efor ever
and if the bad deeds are more then you go to hell
and live ther for ever
it is a very funny life
our real life will be decided
on the shortest period of 60 yrs
and what we do here
will decide what we are going to be
So keep this thing always in mind
you will have a diff attitude towards life
this is 100% truth
and is surely going to happen
philosophy over

Being a bad guy aint cool

Have you ever wondered from where Ramu got his story for company?

Watch Scareface(1983). They don't make any like them no more.

Not so tagged..

Dood,

The tagged thing is too boring for me. I can't do this..

My life is too mysterious that i cant capture any moments that will fit into that four walls of being tagged. I am not sure of what all are the things i like and what i hate. Because i always end up loving the things which i hated. so i am not sure of what to write. And i cant behave like a good guy because i am the upcoming Mafia King Don, the worst bad guy ever.

Please untag me..


Cheers,

DON

No Mameeeeeeees

Is it okay to feel terrible from the moment you wake up and suddenly you start dancing to the music of Shankar Ehsaan Loy(Main hoon DON).

You think i am sad?

No Maamees

A kissing problem

Day 1- I got the taste of it. Even though i was not at the receiving end I was well in a good 4 yards distance when that happened. Nirvana (sounds like an Name of Indian origin but it is a very common girl's name in Mexico) came and kissed Good morning to Papa Roach. I was like "OH MY GOD What the hell is this, first day to office and being kissed by a girl. what will happen to my virginity?" I looked into the depths of my laptop's Monitor staring at my Orkut profile like never before. Luckily She said Hello, Good morning!! from a decent distance. I replied with a hi and my usual frown hopping she wouldn't come near me again.

Week 3- 3 weeks had past. It was quite a struggle. Every mornings and evenings I had to ignore all the (very good looking and friendly) girls of my team just because i feared of being kissed. Then this past Monday morning it happened. One very slim lady (I still don't know her name and which team she belongs) kissed good morning to me when i was completely unprepared (Very Important Note: It is not like the real kiss they just come near, touches cheeks and make that muchhh sound and that's all). For a minute I couldn't look at Papa roach because for the past 3 weeks i had been teasing and threatening him for enjoying not less than 4 pairs of kisses everyday. Papa Roach gave his usual smile and said "Aadath Lagaale Bache Ab tumhe Rooz milenge... Chumma" (Get used to it, Now you will get it everyday) . The same day evening I got one more goodbye Kiss from one another girl from the team.

Now i am under the threat of Minimum 2 pairs of kisses every single day only if i succeed in ignoring other girls and women for (OMG) Rest of my Life (....????).

I may get used to in another week but the Rendezvous with the western lifestyle and the adrenaline rush was by all means priceless.

Pardes main ek Desi

I.N.D.I.A. - The five letters

When I used to walk on the streets of chennai, I used to look at the sky and admire the aircrafts taking off and landing to the Meenabakam air terminal and I used to tell myself One Day, One Dayi will also take off. Take off and fly away from the relations friends noise traffic cricket dirty politics Corruption Caste/Religious Misunderstandings and everything. I thought i will cut myself away from all the strings which kept myself attached to the arena. The arena where i just had to dance to the music and the strings made sure that i always made the right moves.

Now the same 5 letters are my identity .

Now I "know" that I would prefer being a puppet than being Pardes Main Ek Desi

Back to work

Back to work

Waiting at the Mexico City Airport for the Bus to Puebla. Puebla, that is where i work for my livelihood. I work in a small car making company in Puebla which is called Volkswagen, The company is so small that they have a small bank opened for their employees which is head quartered in Germany. They are saying that they are the largest automobile company in the world. But i didn't believe them. Not even after seeing thousands of cars parked in the employee parking. You tell me if they have bought the worlds most expensive banking software for handling the payrolls and loans of the employees then does it make them one of the most influential companies in the world. No i don't think so.

Ok OK Bandas Apart.

Loads of work are waiting for me in the office. Once Ramu goes back to India this weekend i will be made to sit Popocatepetl volcano . The first week was almost fun in the office. Roaming around seeing people, Eating Mexican food and enjoying life. The poor network connection ensured that we always had an excuse for our lethargy.

Apart from downloading 7 movies in just 4 days from the office, I also watched couple of movies in the cable TV they provide in the hotel. If I had spent lesser time in the gym and the jacuzzi then i would have got more time to see the movies which i downloaded. Thanks to Papa Roach.

Now that Ramadan has started.. I think this will be the most toughest Ramadan for me. I think this is the right time to get more organizized.

After a series of Negative and Positive testing i have found out that the network in the office was getting ****** up due my downloads only. So i am temporarily stopping my downloads. After all why should i **** up the office network when i can get a 40 kb/s download speeds at the hotel room itself.

Something which is not at all related to the post : The one thing i most liked after coming here to Mexico is the view of the volcano from my Hotel room Window in the morning. It is nothing less than breath taking.

The Independence Day

What am i thinking about?

I am not thinking bout no nothing my mind is completely blank and exhausted after the days outing and the Movie Matrix is playing in TNT. Combining to be the most devastating mind blockers in the whole of Mexico city.

I am at the Eurostar suites in Zona Rosa which is in the heart of the Mexico city. Today is the independence day of Mexico. I dont know from who they got freedom or who all faught for it or who all died for it. All i know is today is the 197th independence day celebration of Mexico. Tonight The President of mexico Mr Felipe de Jesus CALDERON Hinojosa is going to give his Independence day speach in Zocalo. And i am told that the whole city is going to turn up at the zocalo for the celebrations.

Dodge this. puff down goes the agent.

Where were we yeah the indpendence day. THe Independce day here is celebrated in the night. The Presidents speach is in the night and then starts the do whatever you want and get away with it night. Yes my friend today there are no rules, no thing is bared, you can do whatever you want and nobody is going to catch you. It is going to be a party night on the streets and that makes the city the most dangerous place to live for us three indians ( Me, Papa Roach and Ramu). So we decided to go to the Zocalo where president is giving presidential Message or speach whatever they call it, in the morning itself and come back to the Zona Rosa, the most happening place in the whole of Latin America. If you ask me i will tell Zona Rosa is the most beautiful place i have ever seen in my life.

The night in Zona Rosa are very lively. Lovers, Gays, Lesbians the Party Animals, The people dressed like wampires, Road side singers, and what else. We can get to see the Human creatures in all sizes and shapes. Now the time is 7:25 in the evening and the party may start any minute from now. Zona Rosa is going to stay awake for the whole night as it does in the every other weekend of the year.

As decided Papa Roach Called me exactly at 7:30 and we are going out to the streets of Zona Rosa to celebrate the Mexican Independence day.

Adiós Amigos

Frankfurt Airport

There is this girl sitting beside me weeping badly. She is reading some book .She is reading "The Queen of the South" and cant stop weeping. There is a lady sitting in front of me, she is from the chineese origin, she is very busy reading some document she is having and is making note of things she was reading. On her left is an indian girl tired from yesterday's flight and sleepy. She is making calls from her mobile which makes her an experienced candidate it seems. I can see lots of indians are all around the Terminal. I can also see people wearing Hijab and Pardah and also the white guys. I am here in the B47 Gate of the Frankfurt Departure terminal, waiting for my Flight to Mexico city. Now time is 10:10. My Flight is only expected by 13:30. It is not even charted yet. So am enjoying the Music i had copied to my laptop the last minute to my flight and also thanks to rajiv for the Headphone he bought me (Though i had asked him to buy a Headphone with mike he ended up buying an Ipod Headset).

The flight was very comfortable though i felt some pressure while landing and at takeoff. There was an indian Family on my left and a Stupid Srilankan kind of looking boy on my right. I was like sitting between the both extremes when it comes to Experience in flying. As this was my first flight i had to learn lot of things. Also i had to learn without help so i was very observant through out the flight. The Srilankan Boy boosted my confidence as he was relying on me and i was like his guardian angel showing him how to handle things. He alwasys waited for me and did all the things the way i did. Thanks to the indian family and my short learning curve I WAS ALMOST PERFECT.

In the meanwhile one hot lady has come and sat just opposite to me. She is not very good looking but she has presented herself pretty well. I said to myself HO HO HO Welcome to Germany.

I am not thinking anything about the things i have left behind back in India. I had got a wonderful sendoff from my friends and colleagues. My Phone kept ringing till the very last minute for boarding the flight. Which reminds of my mobile phone which was malfunctioning. I had to attend the call in the very second i get it. what a time to have a faulty mobile. I was telling myself oh what a perfect day and PUFF There it come Mobile is acting wiered. But still I didnt let the bloody Gadget to fidget with my Nerves. Everything else was perfect. The security checks, Emigration, Check in and all the other creepy Airport stuff.

In the meanwhile There is this Indian Boy who is along with his brother roller skating all over the terminal.

And there they are the crazy european youth. Funny caps, jeans, bags, Hairstyle, attitude. They are calm but ready to explode though.

There is this slight headache i am expriencing now. Is it the temprature change or is it the music that is playing in my head "Thank you for Loving me". I have all the medicines in the world with me but i cant take any cos i dont get water here. "Hello Mr Borat this is not India".I have to exchange the dollars i am having with Euros and then only i can buy anything over here. So what I will do is I'll calmly sit back and wait for my flight, and take the medicine in the flight only. Which reminds me of my flight which is ought to take off from here by 13:30. It is only 11:00 now I have amble time to board the flight.

For now I have just two choices no no I have three choices. One i can sit here and write some more crap into this or I can shut the system down and take a walk through the Airport or I can Simply shutdown the system and Sleep for some time which wouldnt be a bad Idea as I have to start getting used to the Time difference thing.

I dont know what i am going to decide on my choices but one thing i am sure of is that my Laptop is running down on the power supply and the Battery is almost empty. So opting to do the smartest thing i will shut down the system and then revise my options to the changed circumstances.

Dhamal Hain ji

My Rendezvous with the First date was not a failure. You hardly get time to think about what is happening on the screen, So you don't have to be logical.

All you have to do is forget your Movie Critic Ego, Sit back and take the ride and just do the Dhamaal.

This is the best comedy of the year.

It will be like you are seeing a preview of all the comedy you have ever seen in your life.
But who cares if the director is a copy cat.

Dhamaal is a perfect entertainer for the family viewers and the best children's movie after Mr India.

Note: First date is a Premier show in Satyam Cinema Chennai, In which you never know for which movie you came for and you will know the Title of the movie only when they show it on the screen.

I wanted it to be you... I wanted it to be you so BADLY

Kathleen Kelly: Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, not small, but valuable. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.

----------------------

Joe Fox: Sometimes I wonder...
Kathleen Kelly: What?
[they stop]
Joe Fox: If I hadn't been FoxBooks and you hadn't been the Shop Around the Corner... and you and I had, just you know, met... Yeah. I would have asked for your phone number and I wouldn't have been able to wait 24 hours before calling and asking, "How about coffee, drinks, dinner, a movie, for as long as we both shall live?"
Kathleen Kelly: Joe.
Joe Fox: And you and I would have never been at war. And the only things we would've fought about would be what video to rent on Saturday night.
Kathleen Kelly: Well, who fights about that?
Joe Fox: Well, some people. Not us.
Kathleen Kelly: We would never.
Joe Fox: ...if only.
Kathleen Kelly: I should go.
Joe Fox: Well let me ask you something. How can you forgive this guy for standing you up and not forgive me for this tiny little thing like putting you out of business.
[Kathleen shakes her head no]
Joe Fox: Oh how I wish you would.
Kathleen Kelly: I really have to go.
Joe Fox: Yeah, well, you don't wanna be late.

---------

Kevin: I always take a relationship to the next level. If that works out, I take it to the next level after that, until I finally reach that level when it becomes absolutely necessary for me to leave.


------------

Joe Fox: Who cares about Kathleen Kelly?
Kevin: Well... if you don't like Kathleen Kelly, I can tell you right now... you're not going to like this girl.
Joe Fox: Why?
Kevin: Because it *is* Kathleen Kelly.

------------

Kathleen Kelly: What will NY152 say today I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.

------------------


When was the Last time I wanted to be inside a movie? I can see this movie a few more hundred times and still enjoy it the same way i loved it the first time. 

You've Got Mail(1998)  is the one movie you never want to miss out from your DVD collection.

I have always wondered why

  • Why does all the Thanni(Water) Lorries in Chennai Leak?
  • Why do people throw things around on the road and blame the government for the city not being clean?
  • Why do People act like Smart when the whole world knows that they are dump. Are they that dump that they really can't even understand they are dump?
  • Why everybody wants to go to heaven bot nobody is ready to DIE?
  • Why GOD created women?
  • Why is it always difficult for people to think straight?
to be contd....

Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

Richard: She's kickin' ass... that's what she's doing.

Dwayne: I wish I could just sleep until I was eighteen and skip all this crap-high school and everything-just skip it.
Frank: You know Marcel Proust?
Dwayne: He's the guy you teach.
Frank: Yeah. French writer. Total loser. Never had a real job. Unrequited love affairs. Gay. Spent 20 years writing a book almost no one reads. But he's also probably the greatest writer since Shakespeare. Anyway, he uh... he gets down to the end of his life, and he looks back and decides that all those years he suffered, Those were the best years of his life, 'cause they made him who he was. All those years he was happy? You know, total waste. Didn't learn a thing. So, if you sleep until you're 18... Ah, think of the suffering you're gonna miss. I mean high school? High school-those are your prime suffering years. You don't get better suffering than that.

Dwayne: You know what? Fuck beauty contests. Life is one fucking beauty contest after another. School, then college, then work... Fuck that. And fuck the Air Force Academy. If I want to fly, I'll find a way to fly. You do what you love, and fuck the rest

I was never a shilpa shetty fan. Then i saw Metro.

C'ant wait to see Metro.
Each time i committed a mistake i hoped that it was my last.

But soon i realized "HOPE is a very Bad thing".

Mozhi Again

Last weekend i saw mozhi for the third time in the satyam complex.

Thanks for the tomatoes and chappals...

But this time i didn't go to the theater to see the movie. I went there to see the people. The people of mozhi. To hear the music and to see the sheer joy of celebration, celebration called life.

This time really enjoyed all the songs and the background music of the movie.

Paruthi Veeran (2007) | (3.5/5)


I have only one word to tell about this movie. "Masterpiece". Picturised in a village somewhere in madurai. The movie is a true spectacle to look at.

Ramji has made his camera talk.He has exploited almost all the angles any one can think of with his camera. The whole of the movie was taken in natural light. Most of actors were without any make ups adding to the realism of the plot. The Picturisation and direction department stands out. Mr Ameer (Director)has done a wonderful job.
But the Icon of the movie is Karthik (Paruthiveeran) and Priyamani(Muthazhagu) who have played roles of their lives. Karthik is lucky to have such a performance oriented role to launch his career and has done no compromise in what can be called a less glamorous role. I wish he signs more of such movies and don't follow the paths of Vijay, Ajith and Surya. Priyamani is an exception in the tamil cinema industry, where actresses are just meant to look good and show off their dancing skills. Her performance make the movie a must watch for any movie buff.

Yuvan shankar raja has done a wonderful job in this album. He set aside his usual ding chik dang chik item songs and gave way to Tavil and other traditional musical instruments to create some of the most beautiful folk songs ever made in the industry. The picturisation of the songs are breath taking.
The only flaw i found in the movie was the way it was dubbed. An Original sound Recording would have made the movie much better. Most of the actors who were first timers to the industry are believed to have recorded for themselves. The unprofessional ism in the recording is very much visible. I felt very annoyed initially as i was trying very hard to cop up with the tough village accent the poor dubbing made things much worse. But soon i forgot about the sound and became part of the movie.

Go by my words The movie is not just full of joy and beauty. It has its own dark moments. The Blood shed and Gang rape scenes are too disturbing. Ginger started crying and BOB gally felt like vomiting watching those scenes. You cannot come out of the theatre without hating the movie. But i think that is the greatest victory of the Director. A movie succeeds when it is able to take its viewers to the emotional highs which ever emotion it may be, and that is exactly what Ameer has achieved with this movie.

addendum: Thanks papa rooch for your valuable help on formatting the blog.

October Sky (1999)

When i started working as a technical consultant for a bank, I was just looking for something which would make my mind busy. That is when i started downloading and watching movies. But i never knew that i will come this farther to experience something like this.



The movie is about four school boys from a mining village who dreamed of making it big. A dream that changed the history of mankind. A dream to fly a ROCKET.





They had to fight all the odds, Prove everybody wrong and had to accomplish something which was almost Impossible. And that is exaclty what they did.



Powered by some exeptional performance and great screenplay this one truely is a gem of a Movie. This one will get a spot somewhere in top of my all time favourites.

Some Quotes

Quentin: What do you want to know about rockets?
Homer : Everything.

Quentin: They watched us get arrested. We're practically ex-convicts. They'll never dance with us.
O'Dell: Jesus, Quentin, you don't know anything about women.

Jake Mosby: Whole damn mountain about fell on your head. And John here, he saved your life.
Homer: That's my dad.

The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)

Maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue. And maybe we can actually never have it no matter what.



Makes you work for its climax if not its message.



A string of annoyances that no doubt riddled the real life of Chris Gardner, but when put in a Hollywood film, feel quite set up like dominos that fall with cliché timing.

POLICE POLICE



Finally. They came to my room to tell the good news.

It marked the end of a 6 month old Saga which was packed with Emotions, Drama and Action like a Bollywood Super hit.

Mr Ganeshan and his constable came to the room and told

" We are from adambakam police station. Have you given complaint of a lost mobile"

For some moments i couldn't make out what was happening around me. I could only hear some dispersed sounds all that i could see were some stars twinkling around me.

The mobile thief is caught. There were two of them. They were caught Red handed trying to steal a mobile from a household. They will be sent to remand and then they will face a trail and will get a min of 6 Months to 2 years.

My mobile is already sold. There is noway i could get my mobile back but instead they offered me another mobile Nokia 3230 which they caught from the thieves.

Anything will do. I just want those cockroaches behind bars.

I asked the police whether i could land two punches on their face for which he gave a nice smile. I couldn't stop myself from going to the police station to see the bloody criminals. There is saw this two kids aged around 18-20 sitting in a corner of the police station.

They showed me signs with his hand asking "Have you come to see us? who are you".

I went close to him and told "AAmaanda (ya) I am the dude whose n73 you stole"

Ooooh what a great moment. Electric

Then they showed sign saying "We didn't do it". There was this look of innocence in their face.

I told myself. Anyway these guys were caught red handed while stealing a mobile. So they are not bloody innocent. The guys are going to loose 2 or 3 years of their youth in government prison. I gave a written complaint against them.

It is sad but they shouldn't have stolen my mobile.

Clue less of what i am talking about.

Read This and This.

From Water 8/10 to Mozhi 7/10

"Water" A dark Romantic tragedy with a loud message about the status of women in the so called "modern India". The movie has no colors except white and black. I couldn't enjoy the movie completely as most of time i was imagining how the movie would have looked like if Nanditha Das had done the role of KAMALA. The transformation from Earth to Water was wonderful especially the way in which Mr Gandhi was portrayed. Gandhi's presence of the screen was truly electric. Unlike Earth, here gandhi was portrayed as the real mahatma of modern India. The ICON of the movie is Chuyia, the 8 year old widow. Her childishness and ignorance brings some colour in the movie which otherwise would have been all dark.

"Mozhi" One of the Best romantic comedy ever made in the south Indian cinema. I don't know from where Mr Prakash raj got the knack of getting the best directors for his cinema, Or is it the other way around I don't know. Mozhi was full of colors and joy. Free from the usual Mokka comedy from the formulae guys like vivek and vadivel, Mozhi is a comedy which you can enjoy without leaving your brain in the closet . But the real beauty of the movie is the romance between Karthik and Archana played by Prithviraj and Jo. The performances were spot on. Prakash raj was as always at his best. Prithviraj has once again proved that he is not just a Superstar Son of Superstar Dad. Jo was ultimate as was Swarnamalya. Only week point in the movie is its music. Even though the background score was good, The songs were just old fashioned, outdated and at times very boring. A movie like this deserve to have a better music.

Intellectual CRAP

Since i had promised myself to keep the Eternal sunshine always spotless, I have started a new blog to let out my frustrations and mourns.

May be fooling around isn't so bad

Jesse: I don't know, I think that if I could just accept the fact that my life is supposed to be difficult. You know, that's what to be expected, then I might not get so pissed-off about it and I'll just be glad when something nice happens.

Jesse: Sometimes I dream about being a good father and a good husband. And sometimes it feels really close. But then other times it seems silly like it would ruin my whole life. And it's not just a fear of commitment or that I'm incapable of caring or loving because... I can. It's just that, if I'm totally honest with myself I think I'd rather die knowing that I was really good at something. That I had excelled in some way than that I'd just been in a nice, caring relationship.

Jesse: OK, well this was my thought: 50,000 years ago, there are not even a million people on the planet. 10,000 years ago, there's, like, two million people on the planet. Now there's between five and six billion people on the planet, right? Now, if we all have our own, like, individual, unique soul, right, where do they all come from? You know, are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls? 'Cause if they are, that represents a 5,000 to 1 split of each soul in the last 50,000 years, which is, like, a blip in the Earth's time. You know, so at best we're like these tiny fractions of people, you know, walking... I mean, is that why we're so scattered? You know, is that why we're all so specialized?


This is what is call Brilliant, Awsome

Pachaikili Muthuchiram 3/5

Good work....

I hope this one also fails in the box office, like all the other good cinemas that have failed previously.

Blogging sucks

When a person is updating his blog consistently then you can understand the following.

1. The person is summa vetti.
2. There is nobody to talk to.
3. He/She is not aware of the other beautiful things in life.
4. There is something wrong with his/her brain.
5. The person is too boring and idiotic.
6. The person is soon going to be a lunatic.

Buono, il brutto, il cattivo, Il

when you have to shoot, you shoot don't talk.

The town is just 70 miles from here. If ya save your breath a man like you can manage it.

I keep the money you keep the Rope.

There are two types of people in the world, The ones with a loaded gun and the ones who dig.

Extracts from one of the greatest movie ever made.
When All the things in the world does not mean anything to you.
When you no longer care for you job, increment or promotion.
When you no longer care how much money have made and how much you can make.
When you no longer care for social status or pride.
When you no longer need any position or recognition.
When you no longer care whether you are right or you are wrong.
When you don't care what others think about you.
And when staying alive becomes the most important thing in life.
That is my friend When you realize how beautiful the life is.

Why always me??

Today morning when i left the office i was telling myself "What a wonderful day ahead of me. I will get my degree certificate today . I will get a last chance to meet all my class mates in one place. Today is my convocation. and in the evening i will get my credit card. I will buy n73 this weekend with my credit card. WOW what a great day ahead of me. I cant sleep today so what i will sacrifice anything, sleep is nothing."

Most of my mates came for the "Graduate's day" function. Only a few couldn't make it to the programme. It was a wonderfully day minus the sleepiness, minus the worst Biriyani of all time, minus the professors's ( i am not sure if this is the correct word to say a lot of professor apostrophe s) veth scene and their untimely advices( in raj's own words "rabpsa pandrathu" and minus the doubly boring award ceremony.


By evening i was very tired. My eyes were too tired. I was sleeping on every piece of iron i could get hold on. I was sleeping while driving. I was sleeping while travelling in the bus and in the train. Some how i reached the office early by 7:15 i was late by 15 mins. It was the maximum i could make. I rushed to the security and enquired whether the bluedart guy had came or not. He had told me that he will come to my ktg office in between 7:00 and 10:00. So the waiting started. I was so sleepy i couldn't do anything. Tried to disturb Renjith for some time, But noway he is only interested in the java program which he wanted to complete before leaving for the day. Also my bay which is also know as the Bargavinilayam (A house where only dead people live :-)) ) of Ktg was empty.


So i had no other way to sit in the reception and read the newspaper. what a Horrible experience that was, I mean all the guys were passing by i was sitting like i have not seen them and the cushion was so comforting and i was going into sleep. Then i decided there is no other go Ranjith thanne sharanam. I had not recharged my mobile (As usual) so went to Ranjith's bay got his mobile and called the Bluedart guy.
Thank you.. He told me it is not possible for him to deliver the parcel to me because the name given in the parcel is not correct. He said the name is not "pronounced" correctly so he is sending it back to the bank. After a confirmation guy told me that he will send a mail to the bank and ask their confirmation for the delivery of the parcel.

Oh god... When will i get my credit card. When will i buy my n73 and when will i go home. Why is this always happening to me???? Tell me god.. Tell me...

Why always me????? :'((


NB: Just in case If you are confused about what is the relation between n73, credit card and home going.

I lost my n73 given to me by my dad in the very next week he gave it to me. Thanks to my room mate who kept the door open in the early morning. I have not told this matter to anybody including my parents. So i have to buy this n73 before i go home and for that i need to get the credit card. Very strange na :).
